The AH-64 Apache is the classic American attack helicopter. Created in 1981, the AH-64 gave all branches of the US military a powerful platform to engage enemy combatants. Standard Apaches come armed with a 30 mm M230 chain gun attached near the main landing gear. The chopper’s four hardpoints carry a mixture of air-to-air or surface-to-air missiles such as AGM-114 Hellfires or Hydra 70 rocket pods. Apaches also come equipped with Integrated Helmet and Display Sighting System (IHADSS). This system allows pilots to control landing, various flight controls, as well as on board weapons targeting by simply shifting their head movements.
